A bunch of my old college friends live upstate and they were having a big meet up camp out. I went on Friday and money is tight so I couldn't go to Cooperstown.

One huge down vote for the Friday night show is that it was part of Newport Folk Fest and was only 2 hrs long ending @ 9:40.

The Fest is sponsored by Newport Storm Brewery. I don't drink much at shows but I like to have two. Newport Storm was serving RI Blueberry, Hefeweizen and an Amber Ale. I didn't care for any of them and had a Dells Frozen Lemonade instead.
Wilco rocked as always.

Good call. Beer isn't supposed to taste like blueberries.
Muffins and pancakes yes. Beer no.

"Only 2 hours long"
There was a Chuck Berry show I saw in about 1978. He raced on stage with a borrowed band, did a brilliant set with most of the hits (including, sad to say, "My Ding-a-Ling"), and the whole programme was over inside about 50 minutes. And no, it wasn't an early show/late show type of thing.
